Do They Miss Me at Home?
BY TRAVELER. Do they miss me at home?—do they miss me? 'Twould be an assurance most dear, To know that my name was forgotten, As though I had never been there. To know that the tailor and landlord. And the banks where my paper is due, And hosts whom I cannot now mention, Had banished me quite from their view. Do they mise me at home?—do they miss me? When the market for money is tight, And collectors in haste are pursuing Their debtors by day and by night? Do the friends who once loaned me a “fifty,” And the others that loaned me a “ten,” Heave a sigh of regret aB they miss me, And wish they could see me again? Do they miss me at borne?—do they miss me? When no longer I'm seen upon ’Change, And do those who were wont to assist me, Say, “His conduct's infernally strange?” Does the Sbylock who loaned me his money, To bear me to regions unknown, Look in vain for occasion to dun me, And wish 1 again were at home? tney miss me at home?—do they miss me: 'Twould be an assurance most dear, To know that my name was forgotten, As though I had never been there. Rut I know that my memory lingers, Around the dear place as 1 roam. And while I've ln'y wits and my creepers, They'll miss me—they'll miss me at home! Picco, thf. Sardinian Minstrel. — This young man, who has been astonishing the Parisian musical world by his performances on an instrument of the humblest possible kind—a little pipe or flageolet, no better than a child’s penny whistle—has arrived in London, and had a concert at the Hanover square Rooms on Saturday evening last, when the effects which he produced by means of his poor little instrument were at once so marvellous and so beautiful that a large audience, among whom were many of our most distinguished musicians and ddlel tanti, were filled with wonder and delight. Piceo is a young man, the son of a Pied montese shepherd, blind from his birth, and destitute of any musical education. Some time in the year before last, we arc told, his extraordinary attainments were discovered by accident. A sportsmon, wandering among the A, pennies, was struck by hearing at a distance a singular strain of music, and found that it proceeded from a country lad, playing on the rude instrument we have mentioned. Charmed and astonished, lie accompanied the youth to his father’s cot tage; and the result was that the old man was persuaded to allow his son to be taken to Milan, with the view of making some thing by his talent. In December, 18f>4, young Picco obtained an engagement to per form at the theatre of La Seala, where his playing created such a sensation that his fame spread over Italy, and lie was engaged at all the principal theatres from Milan to Naples. At Rome he was made, by a for mal diploma, a member of the Academy of Saint Cecilia, in that city. From Naples he went to Paris, and appeared at the The atre Italien, in December last; and the im pression he made on the public was described iu glowing language by the Journal ties lk bats, the Presse, and other leading journals of the French metropolis; and it was made apparent by his performance at the llanover square Reoms last Saturday that their ac counts were by no means exaggerated. On that occasion the audience were much interested by Picco’s appearance and man ner. He was in the picturesque attire of an Italian mountaineer, with an open intelligent face, and a simple, modest deportment.— His instrument was precisely what it had been described to be—a mere child’s toy of the rudest construction, about three inches long, and so minute that, while lie wasplay ing, it was almost hidden by his fingers. it has only three holes, and yet be contrives to , produce from it, by means which we confess our inability eveu to imagine, a complete chromatic scale of three octaves, with every semitone perfectly in tune. The tones which he draws from it are clear, sweet, and bril liant; and he executes the most rapid pas sages with a freedom and Uuency which could not be exceeded by the most skilful performer on the violin. But, beyond these mechanical attainments, which must have been gained by ingenuity and application, he possesses the more precious gifts derived immediately from nature—taste, refinement, and feeling. lie has a powerful imagination and an inventive genius—the faculties ne cessary to make a composer as well as a per former. He is able to extemporise on a given subject with great brilliancy, and in a style entirely his own. At the concert on Saturday he played two pieces, the ‘Casta Diva,’ from ‘Norma,’ and the ‘Carnaval de Venise,’ with variations, partly Paganini’s, and partly his own. His performance of Bellini's celebrated air was exqui.-itely beau tiful; quite vocal in its effect, and full of ex pression His ‘Carnaval de Venise,’ was absolutely marvellous, and quite indescrib able; it must be heard to form any idea of it. It contained the wildest and most fan tastic flights of Paganini, whose variations lie must have learned from some of the great violinists whom he may have heard iu the course of his Italian travels—none of whom, however, could have surpassed him in bril liancy of execution. The only defects in his performance are those which could not be possibly avoided by any degree of skill. The first is the high pitch of Ins instrument and its want ol low notes; and the second is tue pu.Tc.iig shrillness ol the very highest bounds oi Ins scale Both are necessary consequences of the minuteness of his tiny piiiyttuug, which, in any other hands, could not have been called an instrument. But they detract much less than might have been expected from tne power and beauty of bis plaything. Ills concert, we must add, was exceeding ly well got up, and interesting, even inde pendently of his performances. The admi rable baud of the Orchestral Union, under their able conductor, Mr. Alfred Mellon, played several fine pieces; and songs by M iss Lascelles and Signor Vcroui gave ad ditional variety to the concert. We advise our musical readers to hear this Italian youth; their astonishment will not be great er than their pleasure.— London Paper. It has been satisfactorily ascertained that ducks go into the water for divers reasons gnd come out again for tun-dry purposes . The Relative Capacities of Nations. We find a well written article, under the above caption, in the Times for California, ft portion of which we transfer to our own columns. With these observations, we give a few statistics bearing upon the financial condition of the leading nations of Christendom in 1854, or before several of them became in volved in the expenditures of the war with Russia. Annual Debt pci Nations. Total Debt Interest, head. England $2,659,798,210 $133,089,308 $131 01 France 1,166,130.748 76,120,652 32 Cl U. States 45,640.606 3.071.016 1 9'.

Next in pro portionate weight, is that of Great li*'tain, which is equal to $1151 04 per head. The annual charge or interest of this debt is about $5 per capita for the population of the United Kingdom. This represents the bur den of tlie past und its expenditures imposed upon the shoulders of every inhabitant of tlie realm. Taking the average of the last five years, it will he found that more than half the entire revenue of Great Britain goes for the past, in the shape of interest; leaving of course, but half the financial capacity of the nation for the present and future. Undoubt edly England possesses more wealth than any other country in Christendom, ami can sustain a larger amount of taxation But this ability is not all available capacity for present or future exigencies or enterprises. The giant ladened to half his strength may not lie able to take upon his shoulders an additional burden which a common man might carry. Strong and broad-shouldered us he is, we must only estimate that portion of Ins strength which is not already taxed to its utmost, in measuring his ability with that of a smaller, but less burdened compet itor. Tims, in estimating the relative capa citiesof Great Britain and the United States we see that the latter have husbanded almost their entire wealth and strength for present and future exigencies. The whole burden which the past imposes upon them only weighs, if we may so say, about $2 per bead, while that of England weighs $131. She is obliged to tax annually every man, woman and child of her population to the amount of $5 for interest on her debt ; while the Uni ted States have only to raise twelve and one half cents per capita for interest. To make the comparison more easy of appreciation, let us assume that twelve and one-half cents represent one pound avoirdupoisc. Then Great Britain lias to carry forty pounds per head, while the United States have only cue, to weigh upon their speed in the race. Sadly Beautiful. —'There is a young lady in this city so dazzlingly beautiful that her guardians do not dare to allow her to go out of the house. She remains shut up at home, and is only visible to female visitors. What a blessing the small pox would be to this im prisoned belle! It should lie added that, with the “ fatal gift of beauty,” the young lady possesses other charms, amounting to about $300,000 ?— JX. Y. Mirror. Murder is Martinez. —A correspondent of tlie Alta, writing from San Jose, April 30th, says : Mr. Victor Kcnson, the driver from Mon terey, brings from that place this evening, the news of another murder committed there last night. From what could be learned it appears that Mr. Picard or l’ieart, a mer chant in the town, was induced to open bis house late at night by two men under pre tence of their wishing to make some pur chases, and when an opportunity offered they struck him on the back of the head with an axe and afterwards cut his throat, with a knife. The struggle must have been se vere, ns marks of blood were found all about the room, und it is supposed he must have Pauly wounded one of the murderers, as marks of biobd were tracked to some dis tance. The noise made in the fqdit alarmed others living near who came immediately, when the two men made their escape. Mr. Picard died in a few moments after their ar rival. Literary Men.— Any one who happened to see the members of the Legislature about the time of adjournment, when they came down J street, with huge piles of extra sta tionary, port folios, ivory paper cutters, &c., under their arms, would have imagined them to lie till literary men, eneli with a corres pondence which would cast Walpole in the shade, or else that there never was to lie another Legislature and this was a final clean ing out.— State Tribune. ♦ m . A Hundred Years Ago. —A hundred years ago, u stupid Gennun monarch reigned over these United States, then colonies o! Great Britain—and on the whole earth, with the exception of Switzerland, there was not n single republic of any pretensions. A hundred years ago the French lilies floated over Quebec, Pittsburg and New Orleans. A hundred years ago, the old Ercnch mon archy existed —the Bastile reared its nc cursed towers—and Louis the XV. dallied with infamous wantons, squandered his sub jects’ money, and blasphemed in his own person the name of man. Fifty years ago, the name of Napoleon was still couipara t.vely unknown. Fifty years ago, cotton ., , > as were, just been invented; and luili Oiids, locomotives, and magnetic tclo giaplis, were practically unknown. Fifty years ago, there were scarcely live millions ot people in the United States, and Ohio was almost a wilderness. Fifty yours ago Washington had just died, Jefferson was still living, and Clay, Webster, und Cal houn were names yet unknown to lame.
